The Ohio Preservation Council and the Intermuseum Conservation Association
have developed a FREE statewide preservation outreach initiative called
“Preserving Our Cultural Heritage.” Anyone who owns or is responsible for a
collection will benefit from attending. This includes individuals as well
as staff and volunteers of museums, libraries and archives, churches,
government agencies, non-profit organizations, clubs, etc.

Topics to be covered in every session will include:

Why should we be concerned about our collections?

What is preservation and why is it so important?

What’s the difference between preservation and conservation?

What kind of supplies should I be using to preserve my collections?

How do I prepare for a possible disaster? What do I do if a disaster occurs?

What Internet and published resources are available to help me?

How do I pay for all of this?!

Inaugural Session!
